I miter've known

Our parish was assigned one of the priests who was just ordained for the Archdiocese. Last weekend was his first at the parish, but we were out of town, so as we pulled into the parking lot this morning my wife and I wondered whether we'd see him.

We did. He was the young fellow processing in next to the pastor, just in front of the deacon who was in front of the bishop.

Boy, you're gone for a week and they change everything.

(Actually, it was of course the visiting Archbishop Dufour of Jamaica. Our parish is sponsoring what looks to be semi-annual missions to Jamaica to help with the Mustard Seed Communities there.)
